. >> anderson, you were just talking about the senate being more comfortable with john kerry. i think in a way, the president would have been a lot more comfortable with susan rice. she's an old friend of his. it's not that he doesn't like john kerry. john kerry helped him out during the debates, he's known him for a long time. susan rice is a dear old friend, and you know, there's another issue here, which is the question of diversity. because if it sort of all stacks up as we think it's going, it looks like the top four cabinet posts could now potentially be filled by men, and i'm sure that that's something the white house really is thinking about. >> and dana, i mean, this team that looks to be falling into place, huchuck hagel talking abt replacing panetta, does it seem like it will pass confirmation in the senate if john kerry is the candidate? >> it does, unless there's something we don't know about, like if senate minority leader, tom daschle, an important member of the club, he didn't make it through because of a surprise issue with tax returns. with john kerry, even the republican

, because you ask yourself, anderson, who could be against a treaty that basically affords people with disabilities the same rights and opportunities than everyone else that doesn't cost the united states one extra penny. we're talking about affording disabled americans including disabled american veterans the same opportunities overseas as they have here at home. unfortunately, our cause, the cause of disability rights was caught up in u.n. politics, and the politics of home schooling and rick santorum and glenn beck, the politics of the far right that intimidated many senators including seven senators who had verbally affirmed their support for this bill. including senator moran, who was the co-sponsor. >> he actually -- >> of the treaty. he voted against the treaty. >> he stood by john mccain's side and supported this. did he give you any reason why he reversed himself? >> i think that in the last week or so, a lot of fiction, a lot of innuendo was drummed up by senator mclee and senator santorum and others about how this treaty may impact home schooling. that has absolutely nothing

are and where you want to be. there. no buts about that. anderson cooper "360" starts now. >>> erin, thanks. >>> good evening, everyone. we begin tonight as we do every night keeping them honest. not taking sides for pulling for democrats or republicans. you can get that on plenty of cable channels. real reporting. finding the truth. calling out hypocrisy or a baffling case of flip flopping. we've been doing some digging on a story we reported on last night, frankly. it gets stranger and stranger. stay with me. it is basically weird. on tuesday, the senate rejected a u.s. treaty aimed at protecting the rights of disabled people around the world. it is modeled on the americans for disability act. 125 other countries ratified it but in the full senate 38 republicans voted no leaving it 5 votes short of ratification. what we learned today is that some of the very same senators actually supported the treaty before they voted against it. some even pledged their support publicly. senator roy blunt of missouri was a flip flopper and kay bailey hutchison and jerry moran of kansas. they all

moment. first here's houf we got to this point. last week the uncle of 6-year-old noah told anderson there were fake web site, facebook pages and e-mails going around asking for donations in noah's name. drew griffin and david fitzpatrick tracked one of those e-mails to the bronx and went to her house. here is what happened next. >> hi. are you ms. alba? you set up donations on behalf of the newtown tragedy? >> no. >> here is your name and address on the e-mail. >> alba eventually agreed to let her voice be recorded and denied she had anything to do with the e-mail having to do with donations. >> this has your e-mail on it right there. there is about noah pozner's e-mail, it gives your paypal account, the bank routing number -- >> that's not my paypal account. i have a paypal account -- is that your e-mail? >> which one? >> it says right there. >> yeah, that's one of my gmail. >> it is your account? >> my personal account. but i never set up any funds for anybody. >> the pozner family tells us they're very upset about this. >> i never sent this e-mail out. i don't have a reason to se

negative advertising but as you know very well, anderson, the polls show consistently that it works. they're moved by them. people complain now about partisanship but one of the fundamental reasons is that the public, individuals like all of us are capable of holding and advocating contradictory views at the same time. we all want them to work it out but we want them to work it out in a way that brings about a conclusion we like. and so it's tough on the politicians but that's the challenge of leadership, to reconcile the conflicting demands of their constituencies with the needs of the larger society. i think it can be done. i think that an agreement on the fiscal cliff is really possible because i think both sides have an incentive to do it and do it right. >> you think going over the cliff is unacceptable? >> well, i think they will end up taking steps to make it less of a cliff and more of a little hill or a slope, if you will, but i think they should reach an agreement and i hope that -- look, the republicans have now been branded rather clearly as obstructionist. the polls sho
